Strange how time plays tricks with all our memories. With respect, I seem to have a strong impression that the doors were a dismal faded matt maroon or burgundy colour.



On reflection I think you may be right Blakey, certainly at one time - the other favorite colour of Leeds! Certainly there were two or three stone steps up to each from the footpath too I think. Memeory wise, I was quite young thenWink

Lucky you chameleon - as the years speed by (74 next) I'm begin to think I've never been young !! LaughLaugh

"tilly"]I must say i had to look twice at the photograph i dont remember it looking like that but then im going back fifty years ago.    

I remember nearly 70 years ago we had trouble sometimes alighting from the Tram ouside the bus station on our way to school because of sheep / cows, bulls being driven to the slaughterhouse from Marsh Lane railway sidings and the animals being spooked i would think by the blood smell. Although the placw was basically was the same as in the picture i am convinced it was not quite so ornate

I lived just around the corner from what is now Crown Point Shopping Center.In my time it was a very big goods yard a lot of the cattle pigs sheep came into there by train I think they were driven down Black Bull Street to the slaughter house Black Bull Street that could be a big clue i wonder if this is were the name came from.? There was a pub at the beginning of the street called the Black Bull was
the pub named after the street or was the street named after the pub? ;)

On the 1850 OS map the road is named, and there is a building where the Black bull stood, but the building is not named
